Sweet Slumber { Austin Newborn Photographer }

I’m so excited to share some sneak peeks of my newborn sessions from January 2011! Such wonderful month with so many new lives to celebrate! This sneak peek is for the “M” family – their new precious baby boy “J” – isn’t he adorable??? I captured the sweetest smiles from him when his daddy was holding him – melts my heart! And some awake shots too – he seemed rather interested in my big black camera in his face! :)Enjoy your sneak peeks!!

Miss A is ONE! { Austin Baby Photographer }

Serious cuteness coming your way! I had such a difficult time narrowing down my favorites! Miss A was such a happy, smiley, cutie pie for her 1 yr old session!! Isn’t she sweet??:)

You might recognize her adorable hat from my favorite Etsy store, Caps of Grace! It’s even cuter in person – trust me! Order one!!:)

Blossom { Austin Baby Photographer }

You know the old virtue, “good things come to those who wait?” This was the moral of this session.:)Like a tiny flower, this sweet baby needed time to open up, to trust, to laugh and play. Her session took place in the morning, during her regular naptime, so the odds were stacked against us. But patience and persistence and lots of singing and silliness paid off!! Enjoy, “H” family!
